Standing alone in the High Cascades of central Oregon, Mt. Bachelor serves up 4,323 acres of lift-accessible terrain and 360-degree descents from the 9,065’ volcanic peak. This vast landscape hosts 12 lifts – eight of which are high-speed quads – and three first timer friendly carpets. When the need to jib or launch skyward calls, Mt. Bachelor also boasts fifteen different Woodward terrain parks, where every level of rider can grow their craft.

For wide open spaces, head to Mt. Bachelor’s newest lift, Cloudchaser. Often referred to by locals as “chasing clouds,” this terrain unlocks 635 acres of groomed runs, natural gullies, and skiable glades.

Once runs have been ran, this big mountain fun can be coupled with 56 km of groomed cross-country trails, snowshoeing adventures, tubing, and sled dog rides. Known as the Northwest destination of choice for families and adventurers seeking a fun, natural, and unique mountain experience, it’s easy to see why this particular Bachelor has so many avid admirers.
